You're actually pretty close to the weight the engineers built the stock KLR for - they didn't engineer them for the average American.

Glad you're OK.

Tell me about your gear, I like your jacket and Im searching for a decent quality, moderately priced setup for everyday street riding to work in the weather, trail riding, and longer tours.

SOVA Rides huh?

SOVA is the portuguese word for "taking a beat"... sounds appropriate!

Learned something here. Youtu.be totally looks like a scam, but isn't.
If you go down below the videos and click the "share" option, that's the link it gives

And nice crash OP. Looks like you made out alright from the video and first post. The things some people do for adrenaline...

Not to derail, but what kind of comm gear are you guys using. It's crystal clear on the video- seems remarkable

I did the almost exact same thing on my tiger this spring. Slowed down, hit some mud and a bump and ended up flying into a ditch. Luckily it was all sand and not the normal rocks and stuff I'm usually on.

Glad your ok! We'll have to compare scars next campout
